Very nice! The monochromatic look works for this rather than against it, unlike most vehicles.

This is awesome. It looks very realistic. Do you have a link to the Brickshelf folder?

This is a really nice dropship. The shape flows quite well, and I loved construction. I'm also glad you found a use for that canopy, which I like but don't know how to use.

I love it! This is the best dropship I have ever seen. Do you have pics of the larger one? A link to the brickshelf would be nice as well.

My apologies, I was under the impression you had built a larger version. You should definetly try your hand at one though. I do have a question though. How did you attach the front pilot area to the back?

That is a nice looking drop-ship. I am very fond the hard working drop ships of your sci-fi area. And I am also very fond of a good piece of SNOT work - which this most definitely is.

I am going to Rate this, and I am going to give it a 9.5/10.

Very nice indeed.

It kinda reminds me of a ship from StarShip Troopers...

Nice looking MOC, btw.

I was looking through your Flickr folder, and there are several more pictures of this.

I think this is supposed to be from the Halo (video game) universe. The D77-TC Pelican he mentioned is the dropship from the actual game. This is not the smaller version of a larger MOC he built, it is a MOC modeled loosely from the Halo dropship.

I hope that clears things up. :)

Very nice! That looks really great. It was instantly recognizable as something from Halo. It looks good in all grey, too. You should definately post this over at CSF. I can't wait to see more photos.
